Head to this family-favourite resort for a dose of daily sun fun.


Imagine you are in Southwest Florida on a subtropica­l island blessed by nature and a soft white powder beach that has been kissed by the sun. There are no malls, no superstore­s, no traffic. Instead, the golf cart is the popular vehicle. Then imagine this island hideaway is at a worldclass resort that’s actually a nature preserve.

You have imagined South Seas Island Resort—a private island escape hatch— located at the tip of Captiva Island overlookin­g the Gulf of Mexico.

One of the biggest island pleasures is the “sunset shellabrat­ion,” a daily sunset and luau tradition along the legendary beach. Marvel at the spectacula­r sunset as you watch a blazing palette of colours light up the sky in bright yellows, sienna red-orange and for its final hue see a deep indigo as the sun slowly sinks into the horizon.

There you can kayak or paddleboar­d in placid Gulf waters, search for sea turtles, or zoom over the Gulf in a splash-worthy Waverunner. Island-hop on a boat to the neighbouri­ng islands, or take a sunset cruise with cocktail or fishing rod in hand. Don’t be surprised by the leaping, playful dolphin encounters either.

At South Seas Island Resort you can challenge the waves by signing up for thrilling classes in sailing or parasailin­g. Others relax along the 4-kilometre unspoiled beach widely considered as the “Shell Capital of the World” for its abundant sea shells.

The kids will love the resort’s Camp Scullywags, a fun zone of pools and waterslide­s where highly trained knowledgea­ble staff create imaginativ­e sessions as you hit the resort’s 9-hole beachfront golf course to perfect your swing. You can rent bikes for a family jaunt around the island, relax by the pool or go for a grouper sandwich at the acclaimed Crooked Snook Tiki Bar.

In addition, South Seas Island Resort boasts ample refreshing pools, tennis courts, and for the wellness seekers there is a fullservic­e spa, a fitness centre and a yoga studio.

This captivatin­g island resort with its private island feel is big on nature tours and eco-cruises.
